He was raised by his single mother who raised him and his sister. They had no father, so his mother was all he had.
Erigga started schooling in Warri, and completed schooling in the same region.
After schooling was done for, he spent years in Warri, Delta State, and was with his family.
Initially, Erigga didn’t want to become a rapper, or even a musician at all.
He wanted to become a basketball player. While he was in school, he engaged in the Milo Basketball Championship, and was a player with the Delta State Basketball Team.
Everything changed after he got done with schooling. He then started listening to Nigerian rap songs, and soon enough, he fell in love with rap and was influenced big-time by the top Nigerian rappers in that era including Ja Rule, 50 Cent, and Nas.
Empowered by motivation from these rappers, he began writing songs, and honing his rap skills.
In 2002, he dropped a debut single. Prior to this time, Erigga rapped in English language.
As he realized how the Nigerian people flow better with pidgin language than English, he fell into rapping with pidgin.
People think he’s not good with rapping in pure English, but the truth is… he prefers the pidgin language because that’s what the Nigerian people understands better.
As time went on, Erigga battled in rap with other rappers from Benin City, Warri, and Port Harcourt.
From these contests and rap battles, he won over 24 awards. Erigga has since been working on himself.
He rose to limelight after releasing a hit track, Them No Get Two Heads. The music video of the song was directed and shot by Igho Films.

He was also given a well suited apartment in Lagos State.
In 2018, Erigga rekindled his musical career with the release of one hit single, Motivation (featuring Victor AD).
After the release of a rekindling hit single, Motivation, he followed it up with another good track, Kettle.
Kettle is actually a story of a young man named Ukiemute, who sold his family’s land to move to Ghana.
When he arrived Ghana, he started spending like a rich kid, and as his money got exhausted, the people he lived with threw his things out.
Erigga is currently unmarried. But as a popular figure in Nigeria, it is nearly impossible to not have someone who gets your goosebumps up.
